Children in the home must be at least 6 years old.
Previous dog experience is required, preferably large breed.
Female Great Pyrenees rarely cohabitate with other females successfully. Our goal is for each adoption to be a permanent placement, therefore homes that already have a female dog are not eligible to adopt a female Pyr.
Hi! My name is Tera and I am one of the pups in the 'Geek Squad' litter. My littermates, Cyber, Beta, Meme and I are all Pyr mixes and if I do say so myself, we are all super cute! I will be about the size of a Pyr. My foster mom thinks I will be about 80-90 lbs when I am grown. I have the temperament of a Pyr as well as that lower energy level. I can be shy at first but I warm up quickly because I love people. I wag my tail every time I see a person. I do not know a whole lot about toys yet but I do know that people are wonderful. I have a blast playing with my littermates. None of us have seen a cat yet but we don’t pay attention to squirrels or any other small critters in the yard so my foster mom thinks I will be fine with them. I think that one hiss from a cat and that will be enough for me! I don’t suggest you call this Geek Squad to do any computer repairs but I do think that with one of us in your home, you won’t care whether your computer works or not. You will be too busy enjoying my company. So please consider adopting me!

About Us: National Great Pyrenees Rescue (NGPR) is not a shelter. We are a not-for-profit, tax-exempt coalition of Pyr rescuers and rescue groups. We save Pyrs and Pyr mixes across the country and place them in approved foster homes so we know how they will interact with your family. Please consider adopting or fostering. Every dog who is fostered or adopted makes room for another Pyr coming out of a kill shelter. Prior to adoption, NGPR dogs are fostered for a minimum of two weeks (usually more), spayed or neutered and fully vetted. Dogs coming from out of area are certified with a USDA health certificate before going to their new homes. Our rescuers adhere to the highest placement standards and will take back any dog whose adoption does not succeed. Visit www.nationalpyr.org to learn more about us, our mission and our breed.
